But now, the upstart carrier has made another announcement which will allow you to fix your roof once again. From now on, the promised unlimited will be truly unlimited.

AT&T 4G A Network Of Lies

4glies

Since the International Telecommunications buckled under pressure from cell-phone companies and redefined their definition of 4G to include any technology faster than what they had in 2009, cellular providers across the U.S. have been taking advantage of pretty words and undeserved titles to class up what is in fact not 4G. And it’s not just one or two companies.

motorola-cliq-2-ces-1

As you may have heard, this is the official follow-up to the original CLIQ and it’ll be heading in the same magenta-hued direction of T-Mobile on January 19th. I went hands-on with the device and it’s pretty much what you would expect with a 3.7-inch display, Android 2.2 Froyo, and the MOTOBLUR custom UI.

Up until yesterday the mobile Skype application had been limited with features and did not included video-calling like its desktop counterpart did. Skype released the latest update for the iPhone and iPod touch, among the improvements is the addition of video-calling for the iPhone 4, it allows a user to make video calls on either WiFi and or 3G network connections. Its ability to make video-calls over 3G is a surprise because Facetime from Apple is still restricted to making video-calls over WiFi.

BlackBerry Pearl 9100 officially announced as BlackBerry Pearl 3G

BlackBerry

There’s no flip version yet of the Pearl 3G, though I suspect RIM will do that at some point too. Announced at the WES conference this week, the BlackBerry Pearl 3G is doing something a little different compared to previous Pearl phones too. Yeah, there’s a version with the expected SureType keyboard, but there’s another version with a standard T9 numeric keypad too. I guess people want bigger buttons; me, I’d rather have a real QWERTY keyboard. Then again, I guess QWERTY fans are more inclined to nab a Curve or a BlackBerry Bold instead. The rumor of a QWERTY Pearl is still out there, so it could happen.

Rounding out the specs for the Pearl 3G are triband HSDPA, 802.11n Wi-Fi support, 3.2MP camera, microSD expansion, and a 360 x 400 display. RIM will be offering in several “lustrous colors” including black and white. The expectation is that versions will be made available (in May) for both AT&T and T-Mobile with the appropriate 3G bands in to, as well as Rogers and Telus in Canada.
